U.S. Denies Russian Newspaper Report

WASHINGTON — The United States denied on Thursday a Kommersant report that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had asked Russia to warn Iran that it was facing its "last chance" to resolve the dispute over its nuclear program diplomatically.

"The secretary did not send a warning to the Iranians through Foreign Minister [Sergei] Lavrov," State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters when asked about the Wednesday report.

Asked whether Clinton had used the word "last" in talks with Lavrov on Monday, Nuland replied: "She didn't use that adjective in her meeting."

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
